RM30A1 tow winch
A state-of-the-art high-performance reeling machine, the RM-30A1 has an advanced ram-air turbine power unit, producing 30% more horsepower than the RM-30A. This enables average reeling speeds of up to 2,000 feet per minute. The spool can hold up to 9,754 metres (32,000 feet) of towline depending on the target configuration, mission safety requirements and towline size. Readily adaptable and certifiable with all tow aircraft, the RM-30A1, RM-30A and its derivative, the RMK-35 (AGTS-36), is used by many military forces worldwide.
The RM-30A1 operates exclusively on electric power and is compatible with all aircraft on which the original RM-30A systems were qualified. This revised machine is even simpler to maintain than its predecessor and retains the original automatic reeling functions, interfering minimally with a pilot’s normal cockpit workload. The RM-30A control panel is retained for the RM-30A1, providing a selectable, digital display of towline length and tension.
